Blessed is the Man

leave a comment »

I made this in IB art.  This is probably my favorite one, and is definitely the one I’m happiest with the results of.  This is a mixed media ikon of St. Joseph and the Baby Jesus.  It’s done in monochrome, and was loosely inspired by both folk art  (obviously) and the artwork of William Blake (not so obviously).  The background is a collage of homes, furniture, and other things related to wood working, because Joseph was a carpenter.  These images were modge-podged onto a 12×18 inch piece of yellow sign board.  I painted it in layers, which is technically how you’re supposed to do things, but I didn’t know that when I first started.  I’m very proud of how the lily came out- I spent a good 3 days (approximetely 4.5 hours) getting it just right.  It has many different shades of yellow-white, and it was a good piece on its own.  I wish that  Joseph and Jesus had come out looking more realistic, but I’m satisfied with how they look.

Music in full bloom

leave a comment »

“Music in full bloom” is definitely not Helen’s best piece but is still a fun and overall cute idea. An old phonograph with flowers coming out of the speaker well as a butterfly on the tube.

Love has no limits

leave a comment »

“Love has no limits” was Helen’s first painting, it’s not quite her romantic style but these bright circles individually wrapped up in their own little world pop and make this piece very pleasing to the eye.

I love rubber duckies

leave a comment »

“I love rubber duckies” is cute and childish. When you were little everyone would play with those adorable and cheesy yellow rubber ducks in  the bathtub, admit it you did it too.

Love turns on the Light

“Love turns on the light” is a simple design and not a new idea but the painting is just quaint and cute.

Rainy day

leave a comment »

The rain may be poring down but this girl’s beauty and plain love radiate a certain sheil from the rain and darkness encroaching around her. This is the scene in “Rainy day”.

I’m holding your hand

leave a comment »

A simple touch, an innocent gesture sending tingles up your spine. “I’m holding your hand” has great detail on the hands, with so much logic, yet, it makes no sense, it’s like being trapped inside a dream.

Why doesn’t it ring

leave a comment »

Come on, all girls have been there, just waiting for the phone to ring, minutes dragging on to feel like hours. This painting shows all the emotion of the girl through a simple pattern and few colors. “Why doesn’t it ring” is simple enough to be dismissed at first but the next time you’re waiting for a call the image will imprint itself on the back of your eyelids.

A Spy’s eye

leave a comment »

“A Spy’s Eye” Is an eye pressed up to a keyhole, looking through from the outside on the way in. With so much orange in th3e skin and surrounding area the blue eye really stands out.

Grow

leave a comment »

“Grow” like all of Helen’s paintings is done in the acrylic medium. But one thing different about this painting is that it was done with her fingers, no, no brushes were used. This makes the painting more distinctivve in the lines and strokes.
